.DISCUSSION...
A coastal trough has been the instigator of showers and a few
thunderstorms across our region, rotating in a counter-clockwise
direction. This activity could potentially flare up later tonight
in terms of coverage and intensity. We are currently looking at
the potential for 1 to 3 inches in parts of southeast Texas and
southwest Louisiana. This could result in street flooding during
times of heavy rains.

The rain coverage will likely be similar to day on Sunday, and
perhaps even Monday, before the trough shifts further south by
mid-week. Accordingly, rain chances will return to near
climatological averages by mid-week through the end of the week.

Temperatures will be dependent on cloud cover and rain. In the
rain, temperatures will be in the 70s or lower 80s. Out of the
rain highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 on Sunday and
Monday, before a warming trend into the low to mid 90s is expected
by mid-week thanks to less storm coverage. Low temperatures will
be in the 70s the entire forecast period.

Invest 99L is still a disorganized, broad low pressure area in the
Bahamas. It has a chance of medium chance of developing in the
eastern Gulf of Mexico next week. So far, indications show it
remaining well to our east and not factoring into our weather
locally.
